The moment we stepped into the villa we knew it was going to be perfect, we were met by Mehmet, who showed us around and then left us to settle in, we had everything we could want even at 11pm, we treated ourselves to some bread and cheeses with a chilled glass of rose.
The location has fantastic views, it is also quiet, you are within a 5 minute walk of a supermarket and a little further for restaurants and bars. We regularly walked (downhill) to the shops and to eat out but mostly got taxis home for the equivalent of a couple of pounds, to save our legs.
Everywhere we ate had great service and lovely food, the Turkish cant do enough for you, they are very accomodating.
We went on a couple of organised trips, canoeing, jeep safari to Xanthos, Saklikent Gorge and Patara beach. They were great, very turkish, so a little rough around the edges but you experience the real Turkey, which we love.
Kalkan Beach was great, quite bigs pebbles though so would recommend beach shoes going to in and out of the sea. You can get sunbeds and umbrellas, very reasonable prices, again there is a pontoon to swim too and jump off.
We also discovered a decked area at the rear of the Indigo bar/restaurant, which we loved, they ran a tab service, so we spent the day there, ate drank and settled up at the end of the day. They even gave everyone a complimentary tea and cake mid afternoon! The decking projected out over the sea it had sunbeds, umbrellas and loads of comfy beanbags is also had a pontoon to swim to, there was a water sports section right next door which our teenage girls loved, they did the sofa, rings and parasailing.
We have arrived home relaxed and ready to tackle another year of work with lots of great memories.
Definitely recommend staying here.
Kalkan has been our family holiday destination of choice for some 11 years during which time it has become very popular, this year more so than ever. Villa Cukur is situated in a perfect quiet location just outside the town, within an easy downhill walking distance of shops and great restaurants and plenty of taxi's to bring you back up! The accommodation is well laid out, very well equipped, clean and feels very much like a home from home. The views from all levels of the villa over the bay and mountains are amazing. The villa manager is ultra friendly and efficient and always on hand for any queries or requests. We will book Villa Cukur again without any hesitation.
Villa Cukur was just perfect for us with three teenage daughters. It was spacious, luxurious, spotless and had everything you could need to make your holiday extremely relaxing. The pool, views and garden were to die for. We had breakfast each morning at the traditional seating at the bottom of the garden. The location was excellent too, it was lovely to be able to walk into Kalkan in the evenings. We would highly recommend this villa. Thank you very much Ann and Mike, you have a stunning villa!
This is our 4th stay in Villa Cukur. We have looked around and not found anywhere better. The villa is very well equipped to a high standard. It has the most amazing views of Kalkan Bay. We just loved having breakfast tea on the balcony each morning admiring the view.
The pool is very inviting and the gardens well maintained and private. The lower garden is like a secret garden with hammock and grape vine which was in full fruit. The lemon and pomegranate trees were nearly ripe.
We walked into Kalkan town each evening for dinner. There is a huge choice of restaurants and the quality is exceptional. It was a bit harder to walk back up hill afterwards but there are plenty of taxis available. Kalkan is by far the nicest resort on this coast.
It's very rare that your holiday accommodation is even better than the pictures online and that's certainly true of Villa Cukur. The views are stunning and within walking distance of excellent bars and restaurants. We managed the walk uphill every evening but there are plenty of cheap taxis. Each bedroom has modern ensuite facilities and the washing machine is an added bonus too. The pool area is spotlessly clean with ample comfortable sunbeds and seating areas. We would strongly recommend this beautiful villa and can't wait to visit again.
